Crackdown on louts at Stamford Bridge
9:30am Thursday 31st October 2013 in News
POLICE officers are to patrol Viking Road car park in Stamford Bridge after complaints about antisocial behaviour in the area.
Throughout November officers on patrol will regularly check for problems caused by groups congregating the car park.
The action has come after a series of complaints about groups of youths gathering with their cars, racing and doing handbrake turns, spraying paint, and damaging fences in the park.
Police have also warned they will crack down on people causing trouble at Viking Road and will consider handing out £80 fines for disorder, arresting people and even could seize offenders’ cars.
More minor offences could be dealt with under the Fairway process, which lets police and East Riding Council write to the parents and guardians of young people involved in antisocial behaviour.
